Connecting dance, spoken word and song, Windows of Displacement explores the human lives entangled in politics of power and oppression.
Migration, home, borders and identity pose some of the biggest questions of our time.
Addressing these issues and more, Akeim Toussaint Buck presents a recent history of humanity in this timely dance-theatre show, drawing from his own journey of migration from Jamaica to the UK to tell a story that is both deeply personal and universal.
Toussaint Buck brings together dance, spoken word and song to present the threads connecting oppression, from the Transatlantic Slave Trade to the current mining and exploitation of the Congo, from the micro to the macro, from the past to the present.
Thought-provoking and immensely uplifting.
